France in Spring - Part 2
By marjo on June 12, 2014
Now if you’ve never been on a Segway, do try it. They are so easy to manipulate, just a matter of a balance. Slight lean forward and backwards and turn to maneuver! What a great way to get around and see a city. We became hooked on our Segway tour of Rome on a previous trip to Italy. So needless to say, we scheduled a trip in France.
This time it was a tour of Dijon. On this occasion we opted for the short tour, one and a half hours, which took us around beautiful gardens, park and a taste of the city. We toured the historical inner city by foot. Of course a car trip around the wineries is a must. We knocked on a few doors of ‘vine masters’, who obligingly opened up their doors (not yet the season for free flowing traffic) gave us a few tastings and good hospitality.
Next on our agenda was a bike trip of the wine groves ending in a local winery for tour and tastings.
Domaine Lahaye is a small family run winery on the out skirts of Beaune.
In fact, the owner was telling us that it was he and his mother and a few family members at key times in the wine making process. They are fully equipped from the presses to bottling. The biking was approximately an hour and a half through and around the groves, including a few stops to admire the scenery.
